Is your favorite sofa looking tired and outdated?

If you love the comfort and style of your old sofa but it's looking worn and dated, you might want to think about reupholstering it instead of replacing it.

By reusing what you have, you'll save running around looking for that "perfect" piece and you'll help reduce your carbon footprint too. If the cushions are sagging, your upholsterer can help you with that by replacing the foam cushions, or by adding new webbing.

Look for fabrics that coordinate with your window treatments, add a few new pillows, and you'll find the whole look of your room has changed.

Custom upholsterers can also manufacture furniture, so if you've always wanted an ottoman that matches your sofa, ask your upholsterer about the many styles available. With one stop, you can have smart "new" seating without having to shop for coordinating pieces.
